organizations, wishing to participate in this review as parties must
file an entry of appearance with the Secretary to the Commission, as
provided in section 201.11 of the Commission's rules, by 45 days after
publication of this notice. A party that filed a notice of appearance
following publication of the Commission's notice of institution of the
review need not file an additional notice of appearance. The Secretary
will maintain a public service list containing the names and addresses
of all persons, or their representatives, who are parties to the
Limited disclosure of business proprietary information (BPI) under
an administrative protective order (APO) and BPI service list. Pursuant
to section 207.7(a) of the Commission's rules, the Secretary will make
BPI gathered in this review available to authorized applicants under
the APO issued in the review, provided that the application is made by
45 days after publication of this notice. Authorized applicants must
represent interested parties, as defined by 19 U.S.C. 1677(9), who are
parties to the review. A party granted access to BPI following
publication of the Commission's notice of institution of the review
need not reapply for such access. A separate service list will be
maintained by the Secretary for those parties authorized to receive BPI
under the APO.
